TEAM ARCTIC TAKES TOP HONORS IN 2015 ISOC SNOCROSS

7-13-06

Team Arctic’s world class contingent of snocross racers capped a successful 2015 ISOC National tour by scoring six wins and the premier championship title during the final rounds of competition in Lake Geneva, Wis.

Tucker Hibbert once again delivered a performance for the ages, winning three consecutive Pro Open finals at Lake Geneva while capturing his ninth career high point championship title. Hibbert’s season was beyond compare, with the tenacious drive scoring 13 of 17 ISOC Pro open finals, breaking the 100 National win mark (with 108 wins by season end) and donning his eighth consecutive X Games gold medal.

Team Arctic’s Montana Jess made a successful return to racing at Lake Geneva after sitting out several rounds to recover from an injury he suffered earlier this season, with the resilient racer taking a big win in the Sport class. Trent Wittwer extended his lock on the Amateur class at Lake Geneva by scoring yet another win. And Ryley Bester delivered a truly dominant performance in the Jr. Novice class, winning every heat and final.

“We run out of superlatives to say about Tucker Hibbert and his team,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “Their dedication and success set the standard, while pushing the boundaries for what’s possible.

“Likewise, we’re grateful for all the Team Arctic racers and crews who compete in ISOC snocross. Their dedication and success inspire us to build better snowmobiles, and to aim for even greater success next season.”

TEAM ARCTIC WRAPS UP LAKE GENEVA SNOCROSS AND TERRAIN CHAMPIONSHIPS

When the checkered flag flew to end the 2014 ISOC National snocross season in Lake Geneva, Wis., Team Arctic stood atop the podium with seven class wins, two class championships and a podium place in each of the five championship points classes.

As the final event of ISOC National season, Lake Geneva saw another historic crushing of the Pro classes by Tucker Hibbert and Marica Renheim. Hibbert was victorious each of the three Pro Open finals, bringing his season win total to 15 out of 17 possible. Marica Renheim was equally impressive, staying undefeated in season finals to record her eighth win. In fact, Renheim lost only once the entire season: a heat race at the season-opener in Duluth.

“Tucker and Marica’s performances this season set a new standard,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “What makes their phenomenal win records even more honorable is the fact that both are great people and excellent ambassadors for snowmobiling.”

Having dominated their classes all season, Hibbert and Renheim also claimed their respective ISOC high point championship titles. In addition, Corey Watkinson capped an excellent season in Pro Lite with a third place overall title. Josh Zelinski did the same in Pro Am 30 Plus. And Travis Kern graciously accepted his second place point title in Sport despite being crashed out of the championship title by another racer at Lake Geneva while Kern was in third place, just two corners before the finish line.

Team Arctic’s contingent of USXC cross-country racers cleaned house in the season championship points war, taking the title in 16 classes including eight podium sweeps and 42 out of 60 championship podium positions. Zach Herfindahl capped his remarkable sophomore season in the Pro class by winning the Pro Stock championship and taking a close second in the Pro Open chase. Jolene Bute won yet another Women’s class championship. And Jon Arneson captured three class championships, including the tough-fought Semi Pro Stock and all-new Super Stock classes.

“The team’s performance in cross-country racing is unmatched in the sport,” said Kloety, and then added; “We dominated at the top end in the Pro and Semi Pro classes, as well as in the Junior, Sport and Expert 85 classes. Team Arctic’s current and future talent is exceptional, with class winners like Hunter Houle, Ryan Trout, Jon Langaas and many others pointing to dominance for years to come. I thank all of our snocross and cross-country racers, teams, crews and families for their dedication and excellence on behalf of everyone at Arctic Cat. It’s our greatest honor to build and support the snowmobiles that you race, and we’re grateful for your efforts.”

Five Class Victories at Lake Geneva to Conclude Championship-Winning Season

A season of victories in ISOC National snocross competition came to a close this past weekend in Lake Geneva, Wis., where Team Arctic racers threw down one final display of domination that notched five class wins and four class championships.

Fulfilling the promise made by his decision to race the entire snocross season, Team Arctic/Monster Energy’s Tucker Hibbert claimed both the Pro Stock and Pro Open championships with conservative rides in pouring rain conditions at Geneva. The cautious approach netted Hibbert both championships, leaving him healthy and primed to finish the season at the FIM World Snocross Championships in Finland.

Rising to the occasion in Lake Geneva with his best finish of the season, Team Arctic’s Dan Ebert took second in Pro Stock, followed closely by Garth Kaufman. Ebert ended the season fifth overall in both classes, with Kaufman finishing fourth in Stock and sixth in Open.

Even more impressive, between Hibbert, Ebert, Kaufman, Johan Lidman and Logan Christian, Team Arctic accounted for five of the top-10 in both Pro classes.

Cody Thomsen used Lake Geneva to put an exclamation mark on his season in Semi Pro, emphatically winning both finals during the weekend en route to the class championship. His factory Team Arctic teammate, Kyle Pallin, suffered tough luck at the final round and finished the season third in points.

With another win at Lake Geneva, Carly Davis successfully regained the Pro Women championship title that she first won in 2009, but narrowly lost last season. Joshua Zelinski took his first win of the season in the Pro Plus 30 class, where he finished second overall in points.

In addition to the high point championships, Logan Christian was named the ISOC Pro Rookie of the Year; Johan Lidman is the Pro Privateer of the Year; Christian Bros. Racing is Team of the Year; and Team Arctic won the Team Spirit award.

“Winning five individual classes, four of six ISOC National Championships and those additional awards emphasizes the talent of our racers, the capability of our Sno Pro race sleds and strength of the entire Team Arctic program,” exclaimed Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “Every week I comment about the pride I and the Arctic Cat family of employees, dealers and riders have for these racers because it’s true, and because they deserve it.”

Hibbert, Kaufman, Christian, Lidman and Thomsen will conclude their 2011 snocross campaign at the FIM Snocross World Championships in Finland on March 26-27.
